At Birmingham Children's Hospital, our Audiology department boasts the largest paediatric bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) programme and accept referrals nationally.
Our team of audiologists provide a comprehensive, family-friendly, diagnostic and habilitative audiology service for babies and children from birth to 16 years. We have particular expertise in assessing children who are difficult to test, and provide a reactive service for a child with a hearing loss.
Our paediatric audiology service is known for its multi-disciplinary work to follow a holistic approach that takes into account clinical, environmental, social and personal elements. We actively encourage parental involvement, including the use of individual management plans produced and monitored in conjunction with parents.
We are known for our success in improving access for children and families, by providing an outreach clinic service at the Birmingham women’s hospital, allenscroft children’s centre, parkhouse family centre and supporting children with their aids at longwill school for deaf children.
The department is also a recognised provider of training for university and post graduate qualification students, during their placement period.
Please note: some clinics for this department are held off-site at Allens Croft Children’s Centre and Maas Road Child & Family Centre. Please check your appointment letter if you are unsure where your appointment will be.
